    If you have to ask, it isn't a pearl. No one is making money from these items, although there are rumors that they are valuable.

    A gemstone is defined as being beautiful, durable and rare.

    Let me amend that. Those are pearls in the link.

    Al of a sudden I'm receiving inquiries weekly about tridacna pearls, do I want to buy or help find a buyer for them. How I wish the rumors would stop, Gemgeek!

    Our Facebook page gets messages all the time. Sigh. And they are mostly of the doorstop variety.

    Hello

    Greetings from Philippines... is it possible that a clamshell can also be a pearl by itself?

    Looks like cast concrete to me, too.

    If it doesn't look anything like a pearl, it's not a pearl.
